, starting under george bush. as well as president obama. there were a reqrements and tests and the like. but that is a recent development. while people are misleading others about when they say that there is not an explosion of food stamps, there's a higher growth rate. what they are saying is rescue the food stamp program for the truly poor. the. neil: we could go back and forth for who is really poor and who is not poor. but you could go beyond food stamps, now you are close to one out of three americans getting assistance. and it makes my head spin. because the direction is that we need to relax the standards or the economy will start to have no choice but to expand this program to the degree we have. it is unaffordable. it is untenable, is not? >> food stamps are not expected to be contributing to our long-term death of deficit. neil: the amount of money that we are committing, and the top that we are talking about, you're right about the improvement and things will snap back into place when the economy and the recovery snaps back into plac but right now it is untenable. >> in

. obama didn't address either of those things today and they are crucial in the debate. also, mr. obama did not address the falsehoods under which the affordable healthcare law was passed. but the new spin from his allies is this: >> all americans know politicians lie. the question is which lies can you live with? and time and time again americans have said we can deal with the lies that president obama tells us because we believe in his heart he has the best interest for the american people. >> so that's what the white house is selling that president obama wants what is best for the folks. and i believe that's true in theory, in theory. he does want what's best for the folks. the problem is his vision is running up against reality. the economy is being held back by his tax policies and by obama care mandates on business. there is no question about that that's not what's best. the medical industry in america will suffer from obamacare. it will be harder for working folks to see a doctor and healthcare costs will actually rise because of co-pays and deductible, that's not what's best. ba
